About the Program
As you know, career change doesn’t just happen. It requires planning, training, and education. The 2-year GA Transitionship Program helps professionals working in other industries make the change from their current occupation or industry to investment and wealth management. We provide an unparalleled opportunity for hard-working professionals who have always wanted to work in the investment management industry, but were either unsure how to begin, or missed the opportunity earlier in their careers.
The program helps professionals working in non-financial industries make the change from their current occupation or industry to investment management. The program prepares candidates for a career change from their current industry to investment and wealth management. It is ideal for professionals with at least five-years of business experience with a minimum four-year degree in any field from an accredited college or university.
The Program is rigorous yet flexible, allowing participants to make the transition slowly without affecting their current income or job status. Applicants that are accepted into the program begin a rigorous training curriculum that continues throughout their careers. Even experienced professionals receive unusually extensive training to help them meet our clients’ high expectations.
